Call for Papers 2019 - Environment, Sustainability and Libraries Special Interest Group

ENSULIB invites LIS professionals and students to submit proposals for our two-hour Open Session at the IFLA Congress in Athens on the theme “Let’s Change Now: Libraries Driving Sustainability”.

We invite presentations that address one or more of the following topics:

  1. Environmental, social or economic sustainability
  2. Libraries providing opportunities for users and citizens to create their own sustainable projects (user or citizen engagement)
  3. Sustainable library and LIS projects, library programs or educational programs.

To keep the session vibrant and exciting, two presentation styles are possible: Papers (15-minute delivery) or the Pecha Kucha format (20 slides shown for 20 seconds each, for a total of 6 minutes 40 seconds). The program committee is interested in proposals from all kinds of libraries and LIS schools.

Proposals must be submitted by 15 February 2019.

Extended Deadline for Proposals: 1 March, 2019. 

Selected presenters will be notified by 30 March 2019.

You’ll find the full Call for Papers on the IFLA WLIC 2019 website.
